Noel Gallagher Opens Up About 'Be Here Now' Regrets

"We should never have made that record then."​

Noel Gallagher has admitted that Oasis recorded their third album, Be Here Now, too soon after their wildly successful 1995 sophomore release, What's the Story (Morning Glory).

In a 30 minute interview posted on the band's VEVO page, Noel opens up about his regrets surrounding the album.

"I only say this now, looking back on it after 20 years.... we should never have made that record then," he admits. "'Cause we came off the back of that American tour which was, again, the third tour in a row that we never completed. And I came back to the airport and the fucking world's press was there and instead of going, 'Right, we should just go our separate ways for a year or two,' we decided like idiots to go straight into the studio."Gallagher continued: "That maybe wasn't the best idea, you know what I mean? Cause 'Morning Glory hadn't really run its course then.

It was probably still Number One in England it was definitely still Top Five in the States. And yet, there we were, going into the studio, effectively trying to to make another album to kill it, which was ridiculous."
